This restaurant features the same decor I remember from my first visit in 1979- lots of dark wood and stained glass. Now, that might be a problem for any OTHER restaurant, except this one. Because this outstanding establishment is all about food, service and atmosphere, and somehow the atmosphere here just works. The food? Iceberg wedge salad was amazing, exceeded... More

Judging by the reviews this restaurant has been a hit for some and a miss for others. However, after checking out the menu and the reviews we decided we would give it a try. True it is a smallish place with a low ceiling and tables set close together, but that did not detract from our experience at all. The... More

We've made a visit to Front Street during our summer vacation a top priority for years. No more. Service has gone way….and i mean WAY down hill. We waited and waited in a dead zone for more than 20 minutes before getting up to ask for another server to take our order. He was better but they were so understaffed... More

We visited Front Street Restaurant twice during our one week stay on the Cape. We were sadly surprised that they no longer serve the side salad with dinner. We debated on going back due to the change in the menu but we enjoy the atmosphere, service and we already had a reservation on a night that was very busy in... More

We have had countless good meals there and we even had our private wedding dinner there 10 years ago! The duck, the filet mignon done any way, the pasta is truely delicious and authentic. There is a talented Italian in that kitchen... More

Front Street is a unique dining experience. Everything about it is 5 star quality. The atmosphere is intimate great for a couple or a small group. Service is wonderful with friendly and very sociable staff who will remember you on a return visit. The food is outstanding with a nice variety on the menu to choose from. The soft shell... More

Very colorful old restaurant in a pub like atmosphere. Service was very friendly and attentive. We had the spinach ravioli with grilled portobello and roasted butternut squash in sage butter and lazy man lobster tettrazini. Both dishes were excellent and I would definitely go back for dinner.
